As I contemplated a couple of quilt tops, I surveyed my thread collection and realised there are some gaps in my palette, particularly in the earth tones. Off to my local thread supplier, Althea’s Threads and Needles, and look what I came home with:
It may look extravagant but I purchased 45 spools for less than A$150. The business is clearing out excess stocks of Rasant for a very reasonable $3.30 per 1000 metre spool. They do mail order too!
2012 Update: This business no longer sells quilting threads.
